Unfortunately, we were not able to enjoy this season. When you insert each of the 4 DVDs in this box set, you are forced to watch a 2 minute ad for Showtime. You are not able to skip the ad on any of the DVDs, and are forced to sit through it as it displays a number of Showtime shows. It even includes an ad for the sixth season of Dexter...
The ad for Dexter is only about 6 seconds long. Interestingly, the marketing team at Showtime thought it would be nice to show THE LAST SIX SECONDS OF THE SEASON YOU'RE ABOUT TO WATCH! It ruined the entire season before we even got a chance to watch it. I have sent a letter to Showtime iterating this blatant oversight. I will update this review if/when I receive a response from them.
I received a response from Showtime. They thanked me for informing them of the error, but did not apologize. They then said that Showtime is not responsible for DVDs, and that I should contact Paramount. They did not provide contact information.
I found a contact for customer relations at Paramount, and sent an email to them. I didn't hear anything for a few days, so I emailed them again. At this point, they forwarded my email to the VP of legal and customer relations.
He responded immediately and asked for a good time to have a conversation over the phone. He was very apologetic about the situation. He informed me that Paramount is not in fact responsible for the content of the DVDs, and that they just manufacture them. The actual content, including the promotions, are provided to them by Showtime. So it was incorrect of Showtime to forward my comments to Paramount.Read more ›
The only problem is that showtime decided to spoil the ending to the season in the unskippable preview at the start of the DVD. How anyone with a brain decided this was a good plan is beyond me. The only logical conclusion is that no one at showtime possesses any brain whatsoever.
Here's a note about your fans, Showtime. Not all of them subscribe to your channel. So, putting the finale in the preview of the content I *just* bought along with other shows they may or may not care about and making it unskippable is beyond stupid.
I should've read the reviews, since many people seem to have noticed this as well. But, I didn't think I needed to since I was already convinced I was going to buy this product.
I won't be buying any more of these products. Six stars for the season, one star for this release of it.
I'll find other means to watch this show in the future. You've lost a paying fan.
